    I am weaning my 2 babies. They are about 5 weeks old now.
    I have had them on thin slurry and have been slowly adding more canned food for about a week now. They now are only interested in wet food. I mix extra milk in it for extra hydration.
    Yesterday I noticed one of them threw up. it was at least an hour after feeding. And then this evening i saw that he boy had thrown up. It had been a good 3-4 hours since last feeding.
    Consistency and color of the food, but smelled really bad. But couldn’t be poop because their butts were completely clean.

    They also have slight diarrhea. About toothpaste consistency.

    I figured this must be normal adjusting to the new food. But I still need reassurance.
    What do you guys think?

    Probably parasites, or worms, which is common. A trip to the vet is in order for a worming medication and a good once over, I don’t think it’s the food since the kitten got sick so long after eating.

    I have had a stool sample done on them and came back negative for parasites. Done 2 weeks ago. I am going to get them wormed though still. I was going to wait until they were the 2months old. They now both have diarrhea… So I guess weather it came back negative or nothing should do it just in case. Are they old enough?

    They are old enough to be wormed, but I would rather see you take them to the vet as the over the counter wormers sometimes aren’t effective or they can make your kittens really sick.

    Also, your kittens are probably old enough for wet food without the milk added. Just cut back on the milk, or only add enough to moisten the food some. Then if they act like they want to suck, top off their meal with a bottle.
